We are dedicated to putting food on everyones table
Infusion Media Group non-profit organization is an extension of 963img radio, an online gospel radio which has been in existence since 2014. The inspiration to start the non-profit wing of the organization can be traced back to 1998 where CEO Patrick Thorpe set out on his pursuit to feeding the less fortunate residents at various men and women shelters across Brooklyn New York on a weekly basis. Since then, he has served on various nonprofit boards and organizations. After the creation of the 963img radio station, the station grew in size and as our team members grew, so did our passion for outreach.
Our intention is to have 963IMG be a fully integrated media platform with a global reach. While establishing the station as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization for the purpose of utilizing its reach to be a humanitarian vehicle of relief for victims in times of disaster.

— How We Do It
As a nonprofit organization with connections in both the faith-based community and the secular community we are strategically positions as a conduit of help. Our goal is to bring aid and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting.
— Our Strategy
